I rode this trail once because I found myself nearby. Beginner to intermediate describes it well. I definitely had fun on this one, particularly the singletrack loop. I'm not sure I would consider this a 'destination ride' but it was a fun couple of hours. There are lots of hikers but they're friendly and accustomed to bikers as well. This would have been a great place to bring out my kids (just getting started) as it offers enough difficulty to keep someone interested and challenged without getting frustrated.

There is also a beaten trail that winds it way down (elevation-wise). Didn't encounter any hikers on this one and it either leads to nowhere or (more likely) I turned around too soon. The elevation made for a good climb.

All in all a nice place for a ride!

Main trail/loop is wide, flat doubletrack. The bruce trail loop is fun. The trail that works its way downwards is less-ridden which adds to the fun.

A really easy, nice warm-up trail. The main loop is simple, and very straightforward, not holding a lot of surprises, and can be done in 15 minutes of so by someone who's ridden the trail before. Beginners will have no problem here. There is a great lookout spot halfway through, near the ski lifts.

For those who are looking for a little more of a challenge, there is a Bruce Trail Loop just off the main trail that is about 3km. It is much more challenging, with tight (and I mean tight, no wide handlebars here, because you will be screwed) singletrack, and some really rocky and rooty sections. An intermediate-abilitied rider should be able to get through it in about 20-30 minutes.

Two downsides: there are a lot of hikers on this trail in the summer, so watch out, they pop up out of nowhere.

HAWTHORNS: THEY ARE EVERYWHERE, AND WILL DESTROY YOUR TIRES! Almost every time I've ridden this trail in the 2009 season, I end up with a flat. (Didn't get one in 2008, for some reason).

Bring: Tubes, Tubes, Tubes, Tubes, Water, and I almost forgot: Tubes.

Everywhere. Especially the 3km Bruce Trail Loop just off the main loop.

Nice and easy with a few challenges if you go look for them. Lots of mud when wet.
